Basically I recently ordered a new graphics card (sapphire Radeon R9 270 2GB) to replace my current below par AMD Radeon HD 8570D integrated graphics card.
When the card came, I proceeded to install the drivers onto the computer, then turn it off and install the card. Everything seemed fine upon startup.
Until I attempted to run a game, upon opening stalker clear sky(and 3 other games) everything would be fine through the menus, until I attempted to actually play the game, then I would get lots of fuzzy dashes across the screen following onto a completely white screen, then after that the computer would reboot.
I have tried disabling the current integrated graphics through both the bios and device managers all to the same result, and I have even attempted to retry the whole process from a fresh, re-installing the latest drivers and disabling the onboard graphics card immediately after inserting the new card.

Any info that anyone would be able to give would be greatly appreciated as I just want to play something!!! Sigh

Do you know if your power supply is sufficient to power the new card?  From this page you need a 500w power supply at a minimum.
